Melanie greeted us at the cruise ship terminal with her friendly smile and off we went. She offered great stories about the history and culture of Victoria as well as showing us some of it's most beautiful sights. We enjoyed seeing Victoria at night - the reflections off the inner harbor were stunning. Thank you Melanie!

If you only have a few hours in port, Melanie is the person you want to call to see it all! We were in port 9/21/18 on the Norwegian Bliss from 4 -10 pm. I had quite a list of "must see" items. We were able to easily do everything since Melanie knows the island so well! She beat the crowds to all of the most beautiful spots. I'm a photographer so she took us to the best photo spots and patiently waited for me to get the perfect shot! Best of all, she could accommodate my handicapped father!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the faboulus review! I am happy I was able to share with you all your must see’s and give you time to take beautiful photos of our city. So lovely to meet you and your family. Melanie

Melanie was amazing. We had been to Victoria twice before and weren't sure of what new things we would see. She took us to an amazing 360 degree island view and pointed out unique neighborhood architecture. We heard the history of downtown Victoria, toured the Empress Hotel, saw the sights in Beacon Hill Park, and enjoyed Fisherman's Wharf. She was happy to show us the best spots for pictures, and took many of us too. Her knowledge of local culture, history, and Victoria in general were very impressive.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such a kind review. I had fun with you both and loved sharing my beautiful city and favourite spots. Cheers Melanie

Melanie is totally charming, informative, interesting and she loves Victoria. This was a terrific tour. She provided a very comprehensive tour of all of the important areas of Victoria. She tailored the tour to the wants of we four older tourists - we didn't want to stop for shopping, we were very interested in the nature beauty, and among other things, we walked through Chinatown and toured the lovely Victoria Park. I highly recommend Melanie if you are touring Victoria - you won't be disappointed.

Melanie took our family of four on a fantastic tour through Victoria downtown, the house boat community, and shoreline park. She is a Victoria native and it shows in her intimate knowledge of Victoria. For lunch, she brought us to a delicious farm side food truck. Her car was so clean. She came prepared with two car seats for the kiddos and water for all. We will definitely call her when visiting Victoria gain.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the faboulus review! I am happy I was able to share my local favourites and everyone had a great time. Melanie

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the city of Victoria. Melanie was an awesome guide. She was so friendly and easy to get to know. We could tell she loved the city and wanted us to fall in love with it too. She really hit the highlights of each place we visited. She was very informative and professional, adding a lot of extra information as we went around the city. We had such a good time with her. We look forward to booking another tour and seeing her again in our future trip back to Victoria.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brenda for the wonderful review and kind words. I really enjoyed our time together and getting to know everyone. Melanie

We had a limited number of hours in the evening on our stop in beautiful Victoria. Melanie did an awesome job filling the time and hitting the most interesting points in the city. She let us determine the speed at which we toured. We didn't feel rushed and we even took some time to relax and have a drink at The Empress hotel which she waited in the lobby for us. We couldn't have asked for a better guide and would definitely contact her upon our return to Victoria!

Our tour guide, Melanie K, was friendly, punctual and accommodating. What we found unique about the experience was that she didn't recite history from a script we could find anywhere, instead she introduced us to her home, sharing with us her passion and love for Victoria, which made us excited about too. She also listened to our family's interests and showed us things she knew we'd enjoy. Our afternoon with her was lovely, like we were spending time with an old friend that was happy to show us around!
